There is a competitive eight-race card at Bath on Wednesday afternoon and with the recent hot spell, it is likely to be firm ground at the Somerset track.

The action at Britain’s highest flat racecourse is highlighted by a good Class 3 fillies handicap at 16:00.

Selections

  • 14:15 – Pepsi Cat @ 4/1
  • 14:50 – Moonlight Dreamer @ 10/1
  • 16:34 – Princess T @ 7/1

14:15 – Pepsi Cat @ 4/1

Pepsi Cat was well backed when scoring over course and distance 14 days ago and the four-year-old looks good value to follow up in the third race on the card, a five-furlong handicap at 14.15.

Steph Hollinshead’s charge was having only her second career start over the minimum trip and she remains unexposed at this minimum distance.

Pepsi Cat still looks fairly treated off a mark of 63, judging by a victory off a rating of 64 at Ripon last year, and it is possible that the four-year-old could prove better than that rating, given that she hasn’t had many opportunities at five furlongs so far.

Fast ground should pose any problems and Pepsi Cat looks good to make it back-to-back Bath victories.

14:50 – Moonlight Dreamer @ 10/1

Moonlight Dreamer showed enough in three maiden runs to suggest there would be more to come in handicaps and Robert Cowell’s unexposed runner can take the honours in race four, a three-year-old handicap at 14:50.

The son of Oasis Dream made his handicap debut at Nottingham 22 days ago, and while that run wasn’t anything to write home about, the ground was probably a little on the soft side for the three-year-old on that occasion.

Today’s good-to-firm conditions look far better suited to Moonlight Dreamer and Cowell’s charge can put up a big performance.

16:34 – Princess T @ 7/1

Princess T disappointed when finishing down the field in a course-and-distance handicap six days ago, but the eight-year-old was sent off a 4-1 chance that day, suggesting a bigger run was expected, and Neil Mullholland’s charge can gain quick compensation.

Princess T has dropped to a career low flat mark of 49 today, and although the recent runs at this track have not been overly encouraging, the eight-year-old did score in Jersey earlier this summer to indicate that plenty of ability remains.
